VERZONI, André  and  LISBOA, Carolina. Present-day forms of subjectivity and the specific characteristics of Y generation. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp. 457-466. ISSN 2359-0769.

This theoretical article proposes an exploration of subjectivity forms that are part of contemporaneity and investigates whether there are subjective characteristics in the youth cut that has been called Y Generation. One of the main characteristics of young people from the so-called Y Generation would be the constant use of digital technologies, a circumstance that would have accompanied throughout its development. From a theoretical review about the modalities of subjectivity articulated with psychoanalysis and the concept of Y Generation, this paper considers that the members of this generation are agents and subject of contemporary time and thus participate in the production of subjectivities. From this perspective, connections are discussed between the subjective characteristics already recognized of the contemporaneity and those that may be emerging from the Y Generation, in order to give it specificity, despite the standardization and stereotypes that the concept of generation gives it.

Keywords : forms of subjectivation; Y generation; contemporaneity; modernity; psychoanalysis.
